Everything is blown up and ready to go. It's the new kids on the block (explorer 100s) versus the more traditional rubberised cotton lilos. The explorer 100s started badly after one bursts before we even start! Lucky we brought spares.
Floating down the river between massive boulders and rock walls.
Rich attempts the highest water jump he's ever done! Does he get water up his nose?
A blockup in the gorge.
Tom takes a run up for his jump.
There's no hesitation from Sue.
Mel outclasses us all by doing a forward somersault!
One last jump before we leave.
Some rapids that need portaging.
Can Tom land it?...
... No he misses!
Tom, complete with a drink bottle of gin and tonic with lime, is in his element.
Lunch. We pull 2 bottles of sparkling wine and a white chocolate mud cake out of our packs for the occasion. By the end we feel maybe a little too relaxed.
Back on the river for some more floating.
No need to paddle in the shallower sections.
Mel and Rich check out the Waterfall of Moss Canyon exit.
Passing by the Waterfall of Moss Canyon exit.
Mel does a 5m water jump.
Caoimhin is the first to do the 6m water jump!
Mel jumps (complete with girly scream) and saves Rich's sinking hat.
Rich completes the biggest water jump of his life! For someone who refused to get his head wet a year ago he's come a long way.
